Uganda Cup Returns on Saturday

Just a few days after Uganda Rugby Crane’s disastrous campaign in Africa Cup in Madagascar were Peter Magona’s charges were relegated from the tier 1A category, focus now turns to the 2013 Nile Special Uganda Cup tournament that kicks-off this weekend.

Action will commence in upcountry locations including Mukono, Gulu, Jinja, Llira among others.

“We will be having super 8 teams travel upcountry and have their players play against those players up there which I think helps in talent identification and awareness of the sport,” Uganda Rugby Union rugby manager Yayiro Kasasa told reporters after launching the tournament.

It will a repeat of last year's final
Heathens battle Kobs in a previous encounter.

League champions MTN Heathens who lost 14-13 to foes Kobs at Kyadondo last year host minnows Mbale Elephants at 5:00pm at Kyadondo while G4S Pirates hit the road to Gulu in the north to face Gulu Elephants.
